Houston — The Montreal Impact conceded a goal in the first minute and the Dynamo Houston eventually prevailed, 3-1, on Wednesday, thus stopping a series of four matches without a win (two draws and then two losses).
The Dynamo could not have asked for a better start, Andrew Wenger converting a lead after 52 seconds of play, on a corner kick, Mauro Manotas. The former Impact (2012 to 2014) got his 20th goal in MLS, in 150 matches.
Alex and Memo Rodriguez were the other scorers of the training texan.

“We could have done better in regards to the game of transition, said the coach of the Impact, Mauro Biello. And when one places a goal very early, it is even more hard to cope with the heat and humidity. As for the Dynamo, they have seized their opportunities and have completed their actions. “
The mercury had a little over 30 degrees Celsius at the beginning of the match.
Houston has doubled the cushion in the 23rd minute, when Alex has hit the target with his left foot. A short pass from Manotas has set the table for the strike, in the heart of the enemy. Evan Bush has been beaten to his left.
One of the few scoring opportunities of the Impact occurred in the 28th minute. Matteo Mancosu threatened the left flank, close, but a defender was thrilled with the ball at the last moment.
The Dynamo would have done even more damage : to the 30th, a Erick Torres is a very short shot much too high on a pass from Wenger. In the 33rd, Torres sent a header on the right post, following a free kick.
At the very end of the first half, Mancosu has been spotted at the mouth right by Dominic Oduro, but he came short in reaching the foot.
Manotas has yet to be given a headache to the visitors early in the second half, but Bush has distinguished itself from close range in the 54th minute.
The first shot is framed, the Impact occurred in the 60th minute. Tyler Deric has frustrated Mancosu with a beautiful diving to his left. A little earlier, Oduro was pulled too high on a centre’s impeccable Daniel Lovitz.
In the 68th minute, Rodriguez brought the score to 3-0 with an accurate strike into the bottom right corner, scoring his first goal in MLS.
At the end of the meeting, Salazar has saved the honor by getting his first goal of the season.
The troupe Biello has lost three times in their last four games.
The Impact has won just once in ten away games this season. This gain was pulled on may 6, when the club paid a visit to the D. C. United.
